What Is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist specializes in correcting irregularities with jaw and tooth alignment and can provide a far greater range of braces than is available at your local dental office. The terms dentist and orthodontist are often used interchangeably by many people, but that’s not accurate.

These two roles have some similarities in the field of dentistry, but orthodontia deals with a more specialized area of dental care. A general dentist doesn’t have a higher level of education in orthodontics and experience in improving your bite and straightening your teeth, as do orthodontists.

How to Choose an Orthodontist in the Bronx?

Before seeing an orthodontist, be sure to check their credentials and make sure they are appropriately licensed to provide orthodontic treatment. Orthodontists are dental specialists who have completed an additional two or three years of full-time postgraduate studies, and once qualified and licensed, orthodontists must remain up-to-date with new technologies and treatments through ongoing education.

Our Bronx orthodontist Dr. Dematteis is highly experienced and plans your treatment using digital technology. This enables him to see ahead of time how each tooth will move during treatment, making it both more effective and quicker. These advanced techniques employed by our orthodontist ensures the best and most precise results and can give you a straighter smile much faster than when using conventional methods employed by most dentists.
